Celebrate: FriFotos from around the world

Moments in life worthy of a Celebration!  Welcome to this week’s FriFotos theme: Celebrate.

Celebrate the moments that take your breath away!

“Life is a journey, not a destination” – and you know how I love a good adventure.  My journey across the top of Spain as I walked the Camino de Santiago was nothing short of an amazing personal experience!  There was a lot of emotion, and at times, a lot of hardship, while I was walking to Santiago.  The final moments as I walked to the Plaza outside the Cathedral, the excitement welling up inside me, the mental flashbacks as snapshots from the 43 days of walking flashed through my head…this was a moment to savour and to celebrate.

Living in the moment

It was exciting to watch my fellow pilgrims arrive in the plaza, celebrating their Camino de Santiago.  The excitement on their faces was palpable!  For many, family and friends were waiting for them when they arrived!  The plaza was filled with walkers, cyclists and on occasion, people who did part of the Camino on horseback!  For each and every one of us, it was time to celebrate!

One of the many aspects of the journey across Spain that meant the most to me was the people that I met along the way!  Every night, there were celebrations as we caught up and relived the moments!


Another cause for celebration…the day I finished my cycling journey across Canada!  Arms in the air seems to be a universal theme here with the celebrate theme!

“Life is a journey, not a destination” – celebrate and savour each moment.

  7. My daughter has done all three Caminos in Spain and felt like you looked in the photos. I feel like that anytime I’ve accomplished something hard and physical too – but obviously I need to take more celebratory shots. Congrats on all your achievements.

    • The celebration shots are the culmination of all that was achieved on the journey! I didn’t see any sad faces of people in the plaza! Celebratory shots were everywhere! Kudos to your daughter for having done all three routes. I would love to go back and do it again – but with so much on the bucket list, another Camino will have to wait. I heard the north coast Camino is simply stunning. I had the chance to see some of it in San Sebastian and can only imagine how gorgeous the entire trail would be.
